I often have people ask me; “What is the cloud or what is cloud computing?”. This past week at work I received a Google Gram (from Google) in my workplace email that really summed it up very nicely…
Cloud Computing” is the use of the internet to run applications or store data. Until recently, most software programs ran on your personal computer. Cloud computing changes that: programs run on a remote server (or servers), accessed by (but not stored on) your computer. Web-based email = cloud computing. Google Apps = cloud computing. Facebook = cloud computing.
In the simplest terms, cloud computing means storing and accessing data and programs over the Internet instead of your computer’s hard drive. The cloud is just a metaphor for the Internet.
